Dewani loses bid to block extradition

Cape Town - Honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani has lost his bid to block his extradition to South Africa until he is fit to stand trial, reports have said.

Dewani is accused of ordering the killing of his new wife Anni, 28, who was shot as the couple travelled in a taxi on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010.

He is the only one of four suspects who has not been sentenced.

A British High Court ruled on Friday that Dewani must be extradited if South African authorities can give certain undertakings by February 14.

In July, a British court dismissed an initial appeal by Dewani, based on mental health grounds, against an extradition order. He then appealed again. - IOL
